Default adding extras to your Pt

I just got a 06 touring pt cruiser!!! I want to make it look more retro but not go overboard. This car will be for everyday use. I'm planning on putting new wheels with 30's style hubcaps, maybe a little extra chrome, and thats all. What are some great sites to look for these items. Any brands you recommend? If I add chrome that uses 3m tape will this ruin my paint?

Exclamation Re: adding extras to your Pt

congratulations on your purchase.


The people that have added the stick on chrome generally use 3m tape.


I like to scan Yahoo, and type in Custom Pt Cruisers, and click on the Pictures tab.

There are plenty of ways to personalize your PT


Welcome, read up on the sections here, there is alot of good information

The stick on chrome strips are also available on ebay in various sizes, I used 6mm for the beltline and, as said, the 3M adhesive tape is perfectly safe. Just make sure all surfaces are clean before you apply it. WARNING, once you start you won't be able to stop!!!! Just ask some on here who have said that they have finished their cruiser!!!!

Go through the old classifieds. Some one had one here I talked to them. A fiberglass early version. It was out in the west somewhere. You might run across it and they may still have it. That's all I remember.

Yeah I have done that, thing is I have a 06 gt, not a first gen, fewer of those out there.

Not even sure it would be adaptable to an 06, I know the headlights are different but idk what else would have to be switched out

Since they incorporate their own grill the head lights would be the only thing. Could inquire a pteaser directly and see what they say.

You should talk to PT Panel "Steve", he has an 06 that he turned into a panel and put a PTease front end on it. The car has the old style head lights.
